    Abstract

    Fuzzy logistical analysis for exploiting a resource helps determine the relative strengths and weaknesses of various supply-demand chains linking alternative sources (in the supply sector) to their final points of use (in the demand sector). There are benefits and constraints associated with each supply and demand sector. Fuzzy theory is applied to the logistical optimisation of these sectors in order to assess the relative importance or degree of association between the supply and demand determinants, which therefore should influence the decisions made for the exploitation strategies adopted for different sectors. Each supply determinant is related to each demand determinant. From their relative values of association, the relationship corresponding to each supply-demand pathway can be calculated and compared with those for the remaining pathways. Such information is valuable, for example when devising and implementing strategies affecting waste management and the recycling of materials and/or energy.
